Infrared will soon be replaced first by nanowires
Because of the rapid growth of the display sector and the lack of ITO conductive film resources, ITO conductive film processing costs are high, ITO has looked for other options, such as graphene, metal grids (nanowires), carbon nanotubes, graphene, and metal grids. Silver nanowires outperform other materials in terms of process maturity and technology. The flexible design of the nanowires will allow them to be replaced by other conductive material with east wind flexible display.
Nanosilver serves as the main ingredient in Nanosilver mesh. The Nanosilver material has excellent antibacterial capabilities, safety, no pollution, which is useful for many applications.
“With the current processes, silver nanowires are first to be used in large scale application as an alternate to infrared touching technology. Du claimed that this substitution “is already quite obvious.” “The large-sized products from silver nanowires have earned customers’ recognition, especially within the electronic whiteboard industry, which will see significant growth in 2019,” du said.
Infrared Touch Control is the predominant method used in electronic whiteboard markets. Infrared touch control is the most popular technology in electronic whiteboard market.
2020- The next flashpoint
We know from experience that smart phones are not only large in size, but also small to medium-sized. This is crucial for silver nanowires’ mainstream success.
A global slowdown is an opportunity for silver-nanowires to take over ITO conductive films. “Full-screen phones, such as facial recognition and full screens, are all in need of revolutionary innovation.” du stated.
Final step towards breaking through nanowire
It is well-known that ITO substitute materials have drawn the interest of many businesses for years. Research, development, investment, and production of silver nanowires on a large basis have not taken place. Other than the well-established application of ITO conductive film, silver nanowires’ production, manufacturing and storage are all important factors that limit their development.
ITO conductive materials cannot completely be replaced with silver nanowires. But, the biggest opportunities lie in entirely new product applications for the future.
